Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Sky Tram, and Sky Trek Zip Lines

This tour combines the serenity of the Monteverde cloud forest with high-speed adventure. You’ll venture into the misty forest to see rare plants and animals, and then head to a friendly ranch for a delicious lunch followed by a zip-line ride.

Your tour begins in the morning, when birds are at their most active. You’ll see lots of bromeliads and epiphytes sprouting from the trees, as well as orchids that sprout in hidden pockets of this rich terrain — your guide will be very helpful for pointing these out. 10 percent of the plants that you’ll find in Monteverde are endemic species. This part of the tour lasts around 2.5 hours, plenty of time for you to see the rare wildlife in this part of the world.

After bird watching, you’ll go to Rancho de Lelo, a working farm surrounded by the peace of nature. You’ll see mountains and rivers and dine on freshly prepared local dishes — everything is prepared with ingredients from the farm. The lunch you have here is likely to be one of your favorite meals in Costa Rica.

For the next part of your tour, you’ll ascend into the treetops in a gondola. Eventually you’ll reach an observatory at the highest point in the forest, where you’ll have a one-of-a-kind view of the clouds and treetops. Then, you’ll begin a short hike to the zip-lining cables — you’ll zip line across 8 different cables that take you back to the valley where you began, concluding your Monteverde adventure!
